Classes are over. The final went surprisingly well (5-) and I received the second highest grade in the class - an A. Needless to say, I'm rather pleased. Oh, and I received my score (pre- and post-) on the OPI; I went up one full level, so I'm now intermediate-mid. Not great, but not bad, either. Now I'm just trying to figure out how I'm going to spend the $20 on my meal card by tomorrow. I should also contemplate packing. That'd probably be a good idea.

I decided to go ahead and drop Soviet History, so I will be taking Portuguese this upcoming semester. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts/advice, especially Amanda, whose comment(s) really helped influence my decision. I think my primary issue was taking three 100-level classes in a single semester. However, second (spring) semester I'll only be taking one, so I won't feel like such a huge slacker. Well, hopefully.

Plans for the next week: go back to Chicago, get a hair cut, pet my cats (and no, that is not a euphemism for "masturbation"), eat large amounts of food, get new shoes/clothes/books, study for the Russian placement exam/LSAT/GRE, slit my wrists, etc. Next Friday I'll be heading down to Missouri. It'll be an eventful week. Here's hoping my parents won't drive me insane.

thanks! I'm quite proud :)

oh, I've had cats just about my entire life... they just don't live with my while I'm off at college (no money, etc). their names are Mischa (after Mischa Barton before she was ever on The OC - really!) and Annie (after Marie Antoinette). :)

ahh, I love cats... I'm probably going to be a crazy old cat man in a few years, just wait and see. ;)

I don't actually have any pictures of them on this computer (or, well, any of the other computers in this house), but I'll make sure to take & post a couple before the end of the week. :)

Good job with your Russian grade! I hope going up to 4th year Russian won't be too hard for you. I know Jeff had some trouble..but at the same time, you will be taking 3 100-level classes so you'll have more time for Russian, I suppose. I'm glad I could help you out and that I didn't confuse you. :)

thanks! I hope you're right - technically, I should be able to do fine, since I was one of the better students in the class (less confident in my speaking skills than most, but that disappeared by the end of the semester, and my grades were consistently high, sooo... yeah haha).

but yeah, thanks again, and no worries about the confusing me thing - I confuse so easily anyways that it wouldn't matter even if you HAD confused me, haha. ;)
